Quoted from sataneatscheese:
Based off criteria... Star Wars. Made by the king of flow, Steve Ritchie. This is a poor analogy, but in your own personal collection, if you prefer Spiderman more than Transformers, go with Star Wars. Star Wars is faster, Star Wars is deeper, and Star Wars has less stop and go with the exception of selecting which mission you want... frequently.
As an aside, I understand you are trying to stay COVID isolated. Not too far from you in Frederick Maryland there is a place called Spinners that has a ton of pins including a Star Wars pro and Guardians pro. It is more of a family place, and if you showed up on a Friday at 1300 when it opened (and school was still in session) it would be about empty.
Yeah, Spinners is on my to-do list. I get my 2nd vax shot next week so I will be more comfortable going out (with a mask still) in about 10 days. But I just have this itch to get a new machine now. I have this terrible instant gratification issue I ordered a Stranger Things but it won't be here for another week or so and I am struggling to cope
I used to go through pins like they were M&Ms. I'd buy a pin, refurb the daylights out of it (strip to the wood, buff PF, clean all parts, sometimes cabinet decals etc...)
About 10 years ago, with the arrival of my 2nd kid, I pretty much stopped because I didn't have time for that. I transitioned my Bally/Williams pins to Stern and been stuck with the same collection and now that collection has gotten pretty stale. Where I used to have MM, MB, CV, ToM and a rotating Stern in my collection, I went with Spider-Man, Iron Man, Transformers Pro and BDK. I love IM, Spider-Man is ok except that the orbits don't flow. BDK and TF Pro I've gotten bored of.
The BDK is leaving for Stranger Things. And I want to move the TF Pro for Star Wars (this thread was pretty convincing)
